Cue Sheet

FIGURE (four times through complete dance)    Mainstream, corner progression

1 & 3 square thru, 4 hands around you go
When you get to the corner dosado, it's full around you go
And do a spin chain thru, girls circulate outside two
A double circulate, when you meet her box the gnat
You pull 'em by, left allemande and weave the ring
Weave out and in and when you meet that girl again
You promenade her, we'll serenade her
We're making whoopee


1 & 3 do a right & left thru, turn the girl you know
Star thru and pass thru, do an eight chain thru
Picture a little old love nest
Down where the roses bloom

You meet the girl you swing and whirl beneath the moon
Left allemande and promenade like a bride and groom
Oh, what's the reason, why it's the season
For makin' whoopee


BREAK (none)   

SEQUENCE (Figure twice for heads, twice for sides)

Makin' Whoopee
 
 

Another bride
Another June
Another sunny
Honeymoon
Another season
Another reason
For Makin' Whoopee.

A lot of shoes
A lot of rice
The groom is nervous
He answers twice
It's really killin'
That he's so willin'
To make whoopee!

Picture a little love-nest,
Down where the roses cling,
Picture the same sweet lovenest,
Think what a year can bring.

He's washing dishes
And baby clothes
He's so ambitious
He even sews
But don't forget, folks
That's what you get, folks,
For Makin' Whoopee!

Another year
Or maybe less
What's this I hear?
Well, can't you guess?
She feels neglected
And he's suspected
Of Makin' Whoopee!

She sits alone
'Most every night
He doesn't 'phone her
He doesn't write
He says he's "busy"
But she says "is he?"
He's Makin' Whoopee!

He doesn't make much money
Only a five-thousand per
Some judge, who thinks he's funny
Told him he got to pay six to her
He says: "Now judge, suppose I fail."
The judge says: "Budge, right into jail!
You'd better keep her,
I think it's cheaper
Than Makin' Whoopee!!"

Composed by Walter Donaldson.
Lyrics by Gus Kahn.
Recorded by Eddie Cantor.
